National-radicals in Ukraine headed for the injection of sectarian strife in the country, believers suffer intimidation and bullying, said the Minister of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Sergey Lavrov in Geneva during the high-level event on the issue of protecting Christians.
The Russian Minister noted that Christians are persecuted not only in the middle East.
“In Ukraine, where following the constitutional revolution was unleashed fratricidal war, national radicals headed for the injection of sectarian strife. Destroyed Orthodox churches and monasteries, priests and believers to suffer intimidation and bullying. Only in the South-East of Ukraine ten churches completely destroyed, even seventy seven severely damaged. Three Orthodox priest killed. Many clerics fled to Russia to escape threats from extremists,” said Lavrov.
